The Federal Minister for Health has recently released the health fund premium increases for April 2019. Doctors’ Health Fund is one of only five funds to have an increase below 3% in 2019 and has recorded below industry average premium increases for the last seven years.
As part of Avant Mutual, a member-owned not-for-profit organisation, we aim to keep premiums as low as possible for our members, whilst providing quality products and expert service. We are proud that our 3.5% average increase over the last seven years is below the industry average which exceeds 5% per annum.
As usual, the increases apply from 1 April 2019 and we will be notifying all members early in the New Year.
